“Best Place Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2012

Been here twice and I think it is the best bed and breakfast in the world and the price and location for LA can not be beat.

This was our second time here, this time for 3 nights. We stayed in one of the larger rooms up on the top floor, which was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The hosts are all very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome and help you with your plans.

It is a fair walk to the centre of Santa Monica, but we just got cabs when we went for dinner, which arent very expensive, so no big deal.

Would definitely return again

We stayed here just one night but it was fantastic. All staff members were very friendly and helpful. The location was excellent - 1 block from the beach and down the road from 4 great restaurants. The hotel breakfast was amazing and so was the complimentary wine and cheese hour. Our room was beautiful and comfortable.

We stayed 2 nights at the Inn in early April. The location is amazing! So close to the beach and at least while we were there, such a quiet area off the beach! Both nights when we went to watch the sunset we were almost the only ones out there! The room was very clean and spacious and the bed was super comfortable. The ladies that work there are very friendly and helpful. Loved the chocolate chip cookies and our welcome name plate when we checked in to the room. We took advantage of the wine and cheese reception every night we were there! So nice to have a few glasses of wine and bites to eat before we go to dinner or out for the evening. They really put quite a bit out for just a happy hour compared to other B & B's we have been too. Spinach/Artichoke dip, hummus, salsa, nuts, pretzels, etc. We also ate breakfast everyday and there was a nice variety. One morning there were the usual things, fresh fruit, pastries, breads, cereal, along with a hot egg dish (my husband liked it, I don't really care for eggs.) The next day was a very tasty strawberry/banana french toast. I love that they have the bikes on site to use. One morning we took off for a bike ride on the path through Venice and Marina del Rey. About 20 miles round trip so you get a workout! Santa Monica is so bike friendly, the bike path is amazing! If you like to walk, you can walk to the 3rd Street Promenade that has several shops/restaurants/bars. We ate dinner one night at Marix on Entrada (which is on the next street over) and we loved the the happy hour tacos and margaritas! Santa Monica and the Channel Inn was our favorite part of our LA location. If we were ever to be back in the area we would definitely stay here again!

If you like to hike around Santa Monica or want to be close to the beach, this is an option. A lot of people live their whole life in Santa Monica and don't even know about this place. The "steps" up to the top of the mesa and San Vicente Blvd (median is great for jogging and it connects into Palisades Park, which runs along the ocean on the top of the bluffs) are near by. You can hike over to Will Rodgers Park, not too far. There are all kinds of small streets and neighborhoods to explore in this relatively little known canyon (except to the local residents who live here). The house has been here since the early 1920s and has been a B&B for something like 35 years. If you want something that is more cozy than the chain hotel, then this is the place. There are only 15 parking spaces, so if you come with more than one car, one of them will need to find a place on the street, which is possible but not always easy, depending on the season. There are a variety of rooms, and some are on the small side. This is not inexpensive but then this is Santa Monica and there are not really any inexpensive places in Santa Monica that are close to the beach and decent. The staff is incredibly helpful, polite and willing to assist you, There are always snacks and refreshments available. The video and book library is quite extensive. The jacuzzi is outside in the back and very relaxing although it closes early. This is a great place for a mini-vacation and overall, you are likely to find yourself relaxed and refreshed when you finally leave, if you stay here. That has a value too, above and beyond a bed in a room. Give it a try, we were not disappointed.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back are quieter if you want to sleep in in the morning. West Channel does not ca...
